Nobody has an issue with killing bears, hell I'd kill love to kill the damn bear that has raided our garbage can all summer it is just the way Booth went about it, the whole bear baiting thing while parked way up high in a tree in camouflage, how fucking cheesey is that and that dumb ass look on his face while he was doing it. Where is the sport in that, real fucking challenging way to hunt I tell ya. I have a close friend who hunts black bears all the time, legally and they certainly do not go about it the cheesey way Booth does.

Doubtful. The people pissed off with him aren't angry hunters.

He killed a bear in a cheesy way? Was supposed to fight it, pull a jersey over it's eyes and clock it a few times?

Hunting is hunting, so long as the death doesn't cause prolonged pain, then fair enough. I imagine that with a crossbow, you can't reload quickly enough if you miss/piss the bear off and so it's for his own safety. Again, I don't particularly like hunting but this is a big meh.

Vegetarian - old Indian word for lousy hunter
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

This is how bored I am. I'm arguing with RoyalDude about whether Booth killed bears in the right way.

I miss my hockey.

:) I guess the answer depends on whether posting something that a certain percentage of the population may have a problem with equates to being rude, obnoxious, ignorant or any combination of them.

Anyway, I am in agreement with Bingo. I miss hockey... Debating bear baiting is getting old.

Even if you agree with shooting bears for shits n' giggles one would have to admit that "baiting" is fucking lazy. What kind of a "hunt" is that? If you want to go hunting, get off your privileged ass and do it right. Nothing ethical about trophy hunting in the slightest, its not even remotely respectable. Its one step away from hunting in a zoo.

You're forgetting the key part of hunting ....the "hunt". Going out to the wilderness and searching for your own. Thats hunting. What Booth did is pathetic. Its not a "man's" sport, its rich men feeding their egos but can't be bothered getting cold, wet & possibly failing.

The after photos are disrespectful at best.

Hats off to Clam Russell, right on mate. I was actually talking about the whole Booth bear bating thing with this buddy of mine who is a seasoned, licensed, ethical bear hunter and he pretty much says in not so many words that bear baiting is not respectable sport hunting. Like Clam says, it's about the 'Hunt'. There is no sport in bear baiting.
